Please take into consideration the quality of the 2008 data followed by one, two or three asterisks:
 * Coefficient of variation between 15% and 24.99%, reasonable estimate.
 ** Coefficient of variation between 25% and 34.99%, the estimate should be interpreted with caution.
 *** Coefficient of variation greater than 35%, estimate too unreliable to publish.
  
1. Refers to seeding of spring wheat and winter wheat that survived the cold season.
2. Includes seeded and non-seeded pasture.
